Samba 3 > 3.0.4 boring stuff


I’m a big disapointed with samba 3 upper of version 3.0.4(tested on 3.0.22 and 3.023c), using ldap as backend, I don’t have a solution to split users and computers accounts… This is very annoying 🙁

Even if I put in smb.conf :

add machine script = /opt/IDEALX/sbin/smbldap-useradd -w '%u'
ldap machine suffix = ou=Computers

it doesn’t work, it seems that this is never took in consideration. (I even tryed the old way to add machines, replacing ‘%u’ by ‘%m’).

I thing it’s an important bug to fix. This bug is already reported to the samba team #1577 since july 2004 !

If somebody has more information, I’m always interested on that topic…

PS: Of course the smbldap-tools configuration file was modified too.
